    DUBLIN, Ireland, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets
 ( ) has announced the addition
 of Renewable, Alternative & Hydrogen Energy Industry Almanac to their
      (Logo: )
     There are few industry sectors in the world today with more potential than
 renewable and hydrogen energy.  Clean, green and renewable energy technologies
 are receiving immense emphasis from investors, environmentalists, governments
 and major corporations.  Today's high price environment for crude oil, coal
 and natural gas will increase the demand for renewables of all types.  A wide
 variety of technologies are being researched, developed and implemented on a
 global basis, from Stirling engines to wind power, from advanced nuclear
 plants to geothermal and fuel cells.
     This carefully-researched book (which includes a database of leading
 companies on CD-ROM) is a complete alternative and renewable energy market
 research and business intelligence tool -- providing information on the
 business of clean energy, including:
      - Government incentives and investment
      - Corporate investment, research and development
      - Venture capital and other types of private sector investments
      - Alternative energy technologies, including wind, photovoltaic, nuclear,
 clean diesel, clean coal, tidal, hydrogen, fuel cells, and more.
      - Profiles of hundreds of leading alternative and renewable energy
      - Superconductivity
      - Advanced electricity storage devices
      - Investment by traditional utilities companies
      - Industry associations
      - Government agencies
      - An alternative and renewable energy industry glossary
     A complete overview, industry analysis and market research report can be
